Car Prices from years past.
what got me thinking is on msn news home page the article of " Best Family Cars for Less Than $30,000 "


Pontiac Firebird Transam 1969 One of The Coolest Car from the 60's
Price From $4,366


Ford Galaxie 500XL Skyliner With large engines , sporty feel and luxury
Cost $3350.00 in 1962


BMW Isetta Bubble Car My Mum had one of these when I was a kid with no reverse gear so she would drive it into the drive and I would push it out of the drive on to the road each morning

Price $2,250

Popular as a second car with a 300CC motorbike engine giving 80MPG and a top speed of 55MPH


Ford Falcon 1960 Ford and America first Compact Car with mass appeal

Cost $1975.00 in 1960

Ford created the Falcon as a compact with great gas mileage and the sales confirmed they were correct with close to 1/5 million sales in its first year

A little history lesson.
To provide an estimate of inflation we have given a guide to the value of $100 US Dollars for the first year in the decade to the equivalent in today's money
If you have $100 Converted from 1960 to 2005 it would be equivalent to $679.09 today

In 1960 a new house cost $12,700.00 and by 1969 was $15,500.00

In 1960 the average income per year was $5,315.00 and by 1969 was $8,540.00

In 1960 a gallon of gas was 25 cents and by 1969 was 35 cents

In 1960 the average cost of new car was $2,600.00 and by 1969 was $3,270.00
